President Andreen of Augustana
college was present and addressed the
council in behalf of the name College
boulevard. He stated that the giving
of that name to the thoroughfare
would follow the custom of many
other cities in which educational insri

show the importance of the institution
to Rock Island he said that 570 stu
dents attended it last year and of
these COO were from outside of thi t
city. These 500 students spend on the
average $:!00 per year in the city, re-)-
